Arsenal set to bid for Rice, but face competition from Bayern

Arsenal are expected to bid for West Ham captain Declan Rice at the end of the season, but Bayern Munich have also made contact with the player's representatives.

Internal discussions at the Emirates Stadium are continuing over the possibility of signing the England midfielder, who was of interest to the Gunners back in January. 

West Ham manager David Moyes has indicated there is a chance Rice could leave - provided the price is right

That has also alerted Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga holders with new manager Thomas Tuchel keen to bring him to the club, according to Sky in Germany. Bayern have already reached out to family members of Rice, who act as his agents.

However, it is understood that the asking price for the Hammers captain could prove exorbitant for the German club.

Sky Sports News reported Rice has a "gentleman's agreement" that he can move in the summer - provided West Ham receive an offer worth £120m, be that in a transfer fee or a transfer fee plus players.

Rice has one year left on his contract at West Ham - with the option of a further year.
